The complex structure of your spine includes bones, discs, muscles, tendons, ligaments, and nerves, divided into three sections: cervical (neck), thoracic (upper back), and lumbo-sacral (low back) spine. When any part of your back hurts, your whole body hurts.

For some people, back pain makes it impossible to move. And spine conditions can cause radiating pain in the arms, hands, hips, legs, and feet, making it difficult to pinpoint exactly where the pain originates. Fortunately, relieving back pain can be done conservatively, without surgery, for many people.

Performance Orthopedics offers advanced, research-based treatments to return patients to their activities of daily living. We offer non-operative treatment of spinal pain by harnessing the regenerative healing power of stem cells.

Exercise - Stem Cells for Back Pain

We extract and concentrate stem cells from your own bone marrow and inject them directly at the site of injury or pain under ultrasound or fluoroscopic guidance. The stem cells quickly get to work repairing any damaged or diseased tissues. Stem cell therapy is a revolutionary way to stimulate the body’s natural healing process. In most cases, the procedure is performed in our office, although some patients receive treatment in an onsite outpatient surgery center.

Stem cells are an effective treatment for common types of spinal pain:

  • Neck pain
  • Lower back pain
  • Herniated discs
  • Sciatica
  • Pinched nerves
  • Degenerative disc disease
  • Facet joint syndrome
  • Trigger points

Stem cells for back pain offer several advantages over surgery. First, stem cell therapy does not require an incision, which drastically reduces the risk of complications and reduces down time. After receiving an injection of stem cells or PRP therapy, you can return to normal activities of daily living within a few days.

The treatment benefits will accumulate over time, providing long-lasting pain relief and accelerated healing right where you need it. Avoid or postpone back surgery with an interventional spine treatment using stem cells at Performance Orthopedics.
